Wtf..17,000 seating capacity?

from ESPN

Warriors new arena will be smaller
The Golden State Warriors have been playing in Oracle Arena since 1971, and after the last round of renovations the arena seats 19,596 for basketball games.

If the team is successful in building a new state-of-the-art arena on San Francisco's beautiful Embarcadero by 2017, as was announced in May, Bay Area fans can expect a much smaller venue.

"It's going to be top of the line in every respect. We don't really know what the economy is going to be in five years. We don't know what the economics of the NBA will be in five years; it's even premature to talk about pricing," Warriors president Rick Welts said.

"What we do know is we want the arena to be full every night and for it to be full every night it has to be organized and priced in a way that 16,000, 17,000 are excited about coming."

This is an interesting plan that would carry with it at least some risk. One has to look no farther than Seattle. When Key Arena was renovated in 1994, the new seating capacity was only 17,072, which made it the smallest in the NBA and ended up being one of the big reasons why the Sonics were unable to turn a profit.

Thats nothing..Oracle right now has like 20,000 seats and easily sells out. Why would hey make it smaller?

I'm too lazy to Google search this but I wonder what the league average is for stadium capacity. This stadium will be built on a pier so sounds about right to reduce the seats a little. Sucks though...

if he was good, he wouldn't be ecstatic about a chance with the warriors, he'd be on a contender.

f**k the Lakers, f**k the Warriors, f**k Basketball in General.

It's just not worth being invested in this sport, with it's ridiculous lack of parity.

No seriously though.

Only like 3 teams have a shot at competing in any given year.



The remainder of the teams KNOW they have no shot, and simply DUPE their fanbases into paying for an inferior product.



What other sporting events actively market the ROAD TEAM SUPERSTARS. COME SEE LEBRON, knowing that nobody wants to see the piece of s**t crappy product that their own organization puts on the floor every f**king year.

It's a grand waste of time.


f**k that noise.

I got better things to do with my time.



I've outgrown this nonsense.

^ I like the passion... This sport is really rough for the overwhelming majority of fan bases. And what I mean by rough is not only do they suck, the chances of them ever being really good is EXTREMELY slim. OKC got lucky. There may be one team like that, a team that hits it big with a low key superstar like KD. For the most part, most teams can look forward to a fifth or six seed tops? The hopes of getting to the second round at best? F'n frustarating. I guess there is always room on one of the bandwagons.
